After removing the old vegetation, heavy duty weed block is laid down to reduce weeds. An "X" is cut in the weed block and the planting hole is dug. After planting the succulent, the hole is backfilled with 50% native soil, 50% cactus mix and 2 cups of GroPower. Give each succulent a good soaking and then install a drip irrigation system.
